NAME
       gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length(gnutls_session_t session,
       size_t max);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       size_t max  is the maximum number.

DESCRIPTION
       This function will set the maximum size of all handshake messages.
       Handshakes over this size are rejected with GNUTLS_E_HANDSHAKE_TOO_LARGE
       error code.  The default value is 48kb which is typically large enough.
       Set this to 0 if you do not want to set an upper limit.

       The reason for restricting the handshake message sizes are to limit
       Denial of Service attacks.
